  1. Same problem as person above once setting the time on Chevy cruise 2015 after a few hours it changed to the wrong time again

  2. There is a missing step. With the navigation screen..if its already on auto have to turn to manual to be able to change the time. This can also be done with the car turned on. After you reset the time..put it back on auto set for time zone changes.
